The 'Monogram' Story April 5th, 2021

Last year we created something special with our friends at This year, along with the Nicklaus Brand and, we created a special glove to celebrate a relatively unknown story in golf history.
In 1966, the Golden Bear went back-to-back by winning the Masters in a Monday playoff. To make the win ever more historic, Jack Nicklaus, despite plenty of sponsors, wore unbranded, monogrammed apparel with a black glove to add to the aesthetic. Jack lacked a respect for the mundane and this glove is no different. Here is the full story behind the glove.


Heading into the 1966 Masters, Jack Nicklaus, the Golden Bear, was the defending Champion. He won the previous year in 1965 by NINE strokes over Arnold Palmer and Gary Player. In 1966, Jack was looking to become the first ever back to back winner of the event. Everyone expected to see Jack at the top of the leaderboard, but how he would appear that weekend would surprise a lot people.


Despite having numerous apparel sponsors, the Golden Bear did something unexpected and showed his lack of respect for the mundane. He dressed in plain, monogramed apparel all week including a black monogrammed glove. Jack did what we wanted and knew that normal wasn't and never has been cookie cutter. Just to back it up, Jack went out and won the 1966 Masters in a Monday playoff to become the first ever back to back winner of the event. He set precedent that repeat winners put the green jacket on themselves.

We can't think of a better way to start off Master's Week than with this glove. Disrupt the Mundane just like Jack did. 

Happy Master's Week!
